Eden's Apple

I'd barely breathed out of my last article Created for Man, when at a family function, I met a relative whose very dear to me...and catching up on her family...she let out lowly that she is secretly separated from her husband, who threw her and their two kids out...and ended with "its only temporary!".

I felt sad for her, she looked sullen all through the function.

Sunday morning, I thought about Paul's words....those who marry will have worldly troubles (I Cor 7 : 28b) and sought an answer from He who made them male and female.

This was the explanation that brought me peace;

Desktop Security! A rogue malware struck my laptop - it disguises itself as an anti-virus...and it has this annoying voice-over of..."new virus"...after every 10 seconds...and before long my alert tray read 231 "fake" viruses...and it suggested that I could get them all out @ $40!!.(Scam marketing!). Fortunately, combo fix and Kaspersky got the rogue out!

Eden's Apple Security! A rogue preposition to Eve and Adam, paralyzed human lives - disguised itself as the cure to death....and with it came the voices of temptation - to be supreme. And whilst, the two became one, threads, worms and trojans were released to disintegrate the one....and history can ascertain, the crippling damage Eden's Apple Security has had.

Not Alarmed! an anti-apple defense was launched, named the commandments - which the users had extreme difficultly following...and the creator launched an even more sophisticated anti- apple combat - not wordy but manly. He sent His Son, Jesus - to whom all authority was given and He disarmed principalities and powers, made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them.

I guess, this is the faith my relative had when, she said, "Its only temporary!". Whatever trojan ails her husband, the power of prayer to Jesus who conquers all, will arrest and neutralize.

Such is her faith.


Created for Man.

I read a certain article from a fellow blogger,  she/ he (profile wasn't clear)...wrote about two ladies who both at 21 years old prayed to God for husbands, one was called Maria, the other, I forget...so lets call her Sue. Maria grew up in a christian home and accepted Christ as Savior at age 7 - has served faithfully her entire life since. 

Sue, well, grew up in an abusive home, was sexually active at a young age, but has since known the love of Christ, accepting Him as Savior at age 20. God answers their prayers as follows: Sue gets married at 22, 1 year after her prayer, Maria at 29, 8 years after her prayer. Writer explaining God's reasoning, expounds - Maria has fortitude, has walked with the Lord for many years, so has developed perseverance....she can wait, Sue - well, is vulnerable - the wind of despair if asked to wait - will whisk her into the arms of a man for reassurance- aftermath will be guilt that may lead her back to her old ways.

I have summarized the story, the post comes in six parts, its quite an entertaining read....but last night, I thought about its truth - it could have been fiction...but I wondered about the whole, strong vs weak christian in terms of God's treatment - I didn't dwell much on that but my thoughts were drawn to the topic of praying for a spouse - ( I fell by this article's blog by googling "prayer for spouse"....yesterday was a day designated to pray for marriage).

In the quietness of my room, my focus was directed to the beginning. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, the first day...on the sixth day, man was made. A while after that, God said, " It is not good for the man to be alone, I will make a helper suitable for him."

A careful search was made among the created animals, but alas, none was found suitable. Man was sedated, God took his rib and made a woman out of it and brought her to man. The man said, "bone of my bones, flesh of my flesh, I call her woman, for she was taken out of man".

Truth is naked. How hard it is to stare at nakedness! Why so, its just skin?!

The naked truth dictates that, "woman was created for man - to be his suitable helper". That is a woman's blue print. The reason God thought up woman - was because, "it was not good for the man to be alone" and "no other suitable helper was found".

My thought process follows; A man needs to first sense his "alone - ness" and then seek for a suitable helper - "i.e. a woman". Man then needs favor from God, for the woman to want, to be "his helper"....I would think...this is where a girl falls for a guys ears - or oh his voice! or his dark skin...or whatever it is, she says makes you the "one". - that needs favor, Prov 18 : 22 - "He who finds a wife, finds a good thing and receives favor from the Lord. 

So, as a woman, my prayer for a spouse should be guided by the following;

Lord, may he recognize he is alone,
and come out to find his suitable helper,
May You guide him along my path
And when we meet, your favor, may you grant
For, I am a woman, created primarily to help a man!

" Behind every successful man, stands a woman!".


Tip your ear....

.....let me tell you about my God...

He bends but does not break.....

He stretches but doesn't tear....

He pulls but doesn't rip....

He presses but does not crush...

He may hide but never forgets nor forsakes....

He heats up but never burns....

He fills up but never drowns.

My God is stable
            is unchanging
            is strong
            is purposeful.

and He sustains.


Tell Me, Please

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
    "I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
    "– so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

- From Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?''
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," replied the Voice.
" To a far- far- away land where I can find peace and rest," said I
" Space and distance will not bring you to it," said the Voice
" -no? what will?", asked I
" Trust," - the Voice.

When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19



The Lord is my Pa, I have everything I need
He makes me lie down in a warm bed
He leads me to songs and people,
places and writings
and there restores my soul

He guides my thoughts, my walk, my talk
Because I have identified myself with Him
An identity He protects,
For His name's sake

As often as my count has failed
I face shadows, daunting voices, demise
I will not fear
For, Pa stands guard
He wills to sustain and comfort

The day of answer comes!
In the face of my shadows, voices and demise
You light and they are vanquished!
Ha! You reward patience and courage
And my joy overflows!

Indeed goodness and love
are my abode, all my life!
And I dwell with you.
